Over the last few months our miss Harriet has turned a real little bookworm who loves a good story (or two or four) before bedtime. She has established a nice pile of favourite books which she studies thoroughly every night. Seeing her pointing, smiling and copying words and sounds is so much fun and you can just imagine the delight when she discovered the pop-up surprise in this latest Charlie Chick adventure:

In Charlie Chick Finds an Egg the curious little chick stumbles upon an egg of rather large proportions, what a special find! What could be inside this giant egg? Join Charlie as he inspects his discovery and see it come to life through colourful lift-the-flap illustrations and pop-up surprises. As you can see Hattie is working hard on her chicken impersonation, Charlie Chick Finds an Egg is a lovely short read for little booklovers and the sturdy hardcover is ideal for small hands.

Get Go

Getting dressed in the bedroom, doing the washing in the laundry, brushing the girls’ hair in the bathroom, putting clothes away in the wardrobe, making lunch in the kitchen… these everyday tasks are normally quick and easy, except when you have a cheeky 7-month old who is on the move…

Get Go Ball Pit 5

Harriet is getting around pretty speedy these days so I need to make sure I have an eye on her all the time. Instead of lugging around a heavy highchair or bulky rocker to entertain her we’ve found a super fun, fast and featherlight solution to keep her happy so I can quickly get things done.

Get Go Ball Pit 3

The ‘Get Go’ Ball Pit Bag (RRP $59.95, 6 months+) by Worlds Apart is a light-weight pop-up ball pit that provides instant fun for little ones. It is a great all-in-one design that is a breeze to set-up and can be packed away in a flash too with all balls neatly tucked inside. The bag closes using four simple press studs and when you undo them the ball pit almost automatically pops open, it even has a handle so you can carry it with ease.

Get Go Ball Pit 2

When folded the Ball Pit Bag is nice and compact but it surprising spacious when opened up, there is even room for two babies to play together so it’s perfect for little visitors! The older kids like playing with Hattie from the sidelines too by putting balls through the holes on the side and returning any balls that have escaped (thankfully she is not into throwing just yet!). The sides are the perfect height to keep the balls in whilst allowing the child to easily peek over the edge and keep an eye on mum.

Get Go Ball Pit 4
The Ball Pit Bag comes ready-to-play with 50 coloured balls, this leaves more than enough room for your baby to comfortably sit or lay in the ball pit and move around. Of course you can always add another layer of fun by adding more balls, these can be purchased separately.

Fly Babee

With just over 4 months to go until our European holiday I am starting to get very excited. I can’t wait to see my loved ones again and of course to introduce baby Harriet to her Dutch family. As she will be 11 months old when we travel Hattie will not get a seat on the plane, but thankfully we received confirmation that a bassinet has been allocated to us. Together with our super handy Fly Babee that means she’ll hopefully be able to snooze in peace during the flight:

Fly Babee

Hailed as a real must-have for travelling families the award-winning Fly Babee (RRP $99.95) is the world’s first sleep-easy cover designed for airline bassinets, pram carry cots and strollers. It’s compact, portable and extremely light-weight (just 600 grams!), yet big enough to comfortably fit around airline baby beds and large prams and provide your baby with a private place for a little nap.

Fly Babee Storage BagThe practical pop-up design makes Fly Babee extremely easy to use, it unfolds in the blink of an eye and attaches to the bassinet or pram frame with simple clips. This same strong pop-up frame creates a safe, spacious ‘dome’ around your baby without a claustrophobic feel or the risk of collapsing. When not in use you can keep your Fly Babee cover safely tucked away in the handy carry bag (included) which attaches to your pram with two velcro straps.

Fly Babee Pram CoverFly Babee is packed with plenty of other great features to make travelling with a baby a little easier, for example block-out fabric that locks out over 90% of surrounding light, 100% breathable fabric to avoid overheating and a convenient ‘Chance a Glance’ window so parents can have a little safety-peek without disturbing your tiny dreamer. Whether it’s a walk around the block, a short domestic trip or a long international flight, Fly Babee takes the stress out of your next family adventure.
